Outside Influences of Losing Weight
Thursday, March 19, 2009
Today I would simply like to focus on the manner to which outside influences affect me in my weight loss journey. This gained importance with me today, due to a bad day at work and it just made me think about failed weight loss attempts in the past. First and foremost, it is often said that stress can definitely affect weight loss. Secondly, it causes a complete mental interruption on my focus. Many times when I would have a bad day at work, I would be anxious to just go home and vent to the wife........or have a few beers....or whatever, but it usually didnt pertain to a diet. I also would form dont care attitude and those were usually the days that I strayed away from my diet.
The main idea of this blog is to Stay Focus. Adversity is going to be there in any situation but I have to remained focused. Today was a horrible day at work, but I have to remember what I am trying to do. I have to keep my goals in perspective. I have to be sure to eat right, just as I would on any other day. I can not let my emotions dictate my eating....Luckily I workout in the mornings before work(which is a great idea for those that face this problem), but if not, I would still have to make myself go to the gym and be productive........I have to stay the course that I have layed out.....
